For $25/month you can protect a 30-acre plot of Virunga National Park - home to the critically endangered Mountain Gorilla.
With your monthly contribution the Rangers will be funded to keep the area free from snares, and prevent another gorilla death. Click on the picture link below to find out more.
At the moment 79 plots are protected, representing a total of 2,391 acres.
BUT WE NEED TO PROTECT ALL OF THE GORILLA SECTOR - this is 250km2 or 61,750 acres.
So right now we are protecting, through this scheme, less than 5 percent of the Gorilla Sector. Please help us.
Check out for example Karel’s area. You can see it below, or click on the top right hand square. Karel can see photos and video of the forest area that he is protecting.
As you know the Rangers go out into the forest daily with cameras and devices that log the GPS coordinates of their movements. This is how we manage to synchronize photos and video with the exact location.
If you have any questions please leave a comment here. Thank you.
